Dancing with the Stars returned for a third series which began on 6 January 2019 on RTÉ One. The third series is scheduled for a twelve-week run.[1][2]

Nicky Byrne returned as host for a third year, joined by Jennifer Zamparelli who replaces Amanda Byram as co-host.[3][4]

Brian Redmond, Loraine Barry and Julian Benson all returned as judges.[5]

Couples[edit]

On 2 December 2018, Mairéad Ronan, was officially announced as the first celebrity to be taking part.[6] Celebrity reveals then continued every day until 7 December when the final three contestants were revealed during an appearance on The Late Late Show.[7][8]

On 26 December 2018, professional dancer Curtis Pritchard was involved in an incident where he and his brother, AJ Pritchard, were attacked in a nightclub by eight people.[9] Curtis sustained injuries to his face, eye and knee. Because of the attack, Curtis was forced to undergo surgery on his knee, he was therefore ruled out of taking part in the series until further notice. It was confirmed he would be replaced by a new professional dancer.[10] On 4 January 2019, Curtis' replacement was confirmed as being former Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer Trent Whiddon.[11] The rest of the pairings were revealed later that day on the pre-show, Can't Stop Dancing.[12]
